Hello,

A company has asked me to install and configure an Exchange 2000 sp3 server. This server is located behind a cisco pix firewall. It has a private ip address. Its function is to send and deliver email throughout the company and the world. On friday i will be transferring DNS authority to their ISP. We will have 2 mx records for fault tolerance.
I've decided on the following naming format:

MX      my_domain.com.      smart host1.<isp_domain>.com.       30
   MX      my_domain.com.       smart host2.<isp_domain>.com.       20
MX      my_domain.com.       exchange.my_domain.com.      10
  A      exchange.my_domain.com.      xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Is this correct?

Also where do I configure the Exchange server name to be exchange.my_domain.com?

Appreciate the help,

Looks pretty clean, though if you develop mail flow issues, you may want to turn off Mailguard. I don't believe it will be an issue for you though, in a single server org.

Now, I assume you're using something like mail.domain.com for your external record on Exchange. Internally, I've found it useful to create a host record that match it. No MX, just the A record internally. Then when that's done, get into the props of the SMTP virtual server, go to the advanced properties, and type in the FQDN of the new host record you created for your Exchange server. Restart the SMTP, that should do it.
